Tiik decrease iu the public debt for

correct. It gives the republicans i ma

Tiik area of Dakota is 117,700 spuare
mile, which is 1(1,000 square miles large!
that Illinois and has over (500,000 inliab
Hunts, enough both of population and
area to justify her admission as two states.
Tiik result of the recent election con

Fivu-ftiXTMS of the people of Dakota

It may not be our put in, but we hope
when Harrison comes to dealing out tin;
poitoliices and other perquisites of posi

with the democratic editors. No class
of citizens have done so much for their

If public orliccs are to go to any man or

republican newspaper tnn are the fellows.

The agent, however, begged the privil

At the last meeting of tho I'orcttry tis
Foeiation. at Grand I .'a; ids, Mich., Mr.
11. Davenport, f WV'-tii.-nd, Mich., read
:i p;.j-cr in n:n::i. 'l the following
statements: "lam beielor tho purjK.e

Irf-lt no ther tree lays -q'.i:il claims to
the attention of those interested iu the
preservation of our forests or oilers so
Kd and economical means for tho ac
complishment of that purpose."
In considering the subject it w as urged
that the sugar maple lills all tho desira
ble, conditions of forestry letter than
any other tree, and that, everything con
sidered, the maple, sugar industry pays
a great profit and may lo considered in
the li.ht of a permanent investment,
and that for forestry purposes proper,
where the preservation of living forests
is the desideratum, those trees are the
most valuable that yield a revenue with
out the loss of tho tree itself.
Tiuilicr trees declare a dividend only
at death, and there is a 6trong tempta
tion for their destruction. The nut
bearing and sugar yielding trees declare
annual dividends, and consequently there
is :i strong reason for their preservation.
Put nut bearing trees Nourish over a
wide range, and there may be some dan
ger of overproduction, besides, as a rule,
the timber of such trees is valuable and
t here is a constant temptation to sucri
liee future welfare to present prolii.
With the sugar maple it is ditlerrnt. Of
all trees yielding valuable products, its
timber is worth the least in the markets;
its annual dividends are high, and there
is no danger of overproduction. It pos
sesses the prime requisites for forestry
purposes, viz., a valuable product and
timber Of little market value. Its life is
about as secure as that of a valuable tree
can be. The product of the sugar maple
is ono of the choicest luxuries, and only
needs to be known in its purity to Le ap
preciated. 7 !ie Girl Who V.vi.
Peter Birch, the celebrated horse
trainer, tells the following story:
'Once I was at tho Monmouth track
it was this year, too and I went upon
the benches, where I happened to sit .just
behind a young lady of about 17, who I
saw was in great trouble. Presently she
turned and asked mo which horse 1
thought would win, and I noticed she
could hardly keep from crying r.s she
spoi-o. I told her that 1 did not know
tho winner for a certainty. She asked
mo to put coiiio money for her on
a horFC, and I frankly tcld her
s':o did wrong to hand " her money
to a perfect ft ranger; but she
insisted, and I took it "nd Lt t for her.
After the race I brought her hack CO),
and you never saw am-hody so delighted

Ain lived m Kew Yoik, ;in;. kept house
for her father and brother, and lf:ey hr.d

had gone to the races, instead, and hud

desperate at the tune, not knowing vl:at
to do. a3 sho dared not go home without
the money. I advised her never to bet
again, and r.ho promised me thr.t fhc
would not. But her caso was only cue

In Westphalia, tho houso is carefully
swept at Shrovetide with a new broom,
which is then hung up over the door and
preserved. In some places in Germany
a broom is burned in tho lires kindled on
May da v. At others, people go up a lull
on Walpurgis night, taking with them
all the old brooms they can collect and
burning them. Czechs do tho same on
St. John's day.
The broom also possesses healing

Th 3 Lowth stettio-tclephone hails from
Chicago, and is a combined transmitter
and receiver. A hollow extension about
four inches long is attached to tho re
ceiver, from tho end of which a small
button protrudes slightly. The button
is placed against the throat near tho
vocal chords, and the receiver is held
against tho ear in the usual manner.
When tho operator speaks the vibrations
of tho throat aro transmitted with, it is
6aid, distinct clearness. Tho instrument
is operated by the muscular vibrations
that accompany tho utterance of words.
Tho inventor, James Lowth, is said to
have been experimenting and working
on this instrument for over ten years.
When he first applied for a patent, three
years ago. the authorities at Washington
thought him a crank, and refused to is
sue one. He attached the instrument to
wires in tho ofiico anil asked over it:
"What do you think now'r' Back over
tho wire came: "I give in. It works per

has been successfully operated between
that city and Milwaukee, and in Pitts
burg it worked over a line seventy-five
miles in length, on which were tw'enty-

Puget Sound lumber is the oldest, most

In this connection the duke quotes
a letter from Prince Albert to himself,
written toward tho end of tho year
1S31, the year of the first international
exhibition. In this epistle tho late
princo consort writes:
"The year closes with an event fortu
nate for us namely, that the man
who has embittered our whole lives by
constantly forcing us to the shameful
alternative of either sanctioning his
misdeeds all over Europe, of educating
tno uacucai party here under Ins
leadership into a power, or of getting
into open war with the crown, ana
thus throwing the only country in
which liberty, order and respect to law
exist together into the general chaos
that this man has, as it were, cut his
own t hroat. 'Give a rogue rope enough
and ho will hang himself,' is an okl
English proverb with which wo have
sometimes tried to console ourselves,
and which has once mora proved true
in this case. We shall have
all sorts of trouble with Palrnerston,
who is furious, and likewise with a
reform bill which has been promised,
and the right carrying out of which is
of great importance to all Europe."
